International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Various authors, Center for Excellence in Teaching at Georgia Southern University, Sept 11, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The July issue is now available online and carries a very mixed bag of articles. The quality is quite uneven. I've linked to a couple I liked (below) after reading a half dozen or so - I found two of the three invited papers (Cambridge and Kwo) to be quite weak, while the refereed papers varied from reading like a testimonial (Gilpin) to yet another study of a few graduate students (de Freitas) to a study of physical modeling activities that felt (to me, at least) quite dated (Fenci and Huenink) - I mean, I remember reading about the rods in Holt (1964). Also, try as I might, I cannot get used to the idea of classifying students by race, as was done in a number of the papers. It's just jarring.
